Though I certainly was rooting for Tiger on Sunday, Rory’s collapse was excruciating to watch. See some of the post mortems.
I had the chance to watch the Masters on BBC. The announcers put the curse on Rory early by talking about the celebration part before he had even tee’d off. Faldo had hired a piano player to play at the party.
Where was Rory’s caddie when he needed him. The kid is 21 and ha never been in that spot. Console him, tell him to move on. Pick his clubs. Caddie grade—D
This collapse made Norman’s look minor. How he reacts is the big question.

Rory is not from the UK. Northern Ireland.
